I set some new goals early this past summer, growing through some new challenges.  Now it is late November, and I am reaching a few of my new goals.  Daily dedication, and content with small steps.  Grateful for good care.  

My file for 2018 photos is smaller than other years, and the flowers are just as beautiful.  These are peonies.
